Asset Management and Investment Funds
Anderson Mori & Tomotsune provides comprehensive advice on issues under financial regulatory laws that arise in relation to all aspects of asset management business (both international and Japan-based) as well as on relevant documentation and other matters. In addition, we have a proven track record and extensive experience in assisting our clients in processes required in Japan for asset management businesses, such as the establishment and registration of investment management companies and investment advisory companies as well as notification of specifically permitted businesses for qualified institutional investors.
Likewise, we have considerable experience in handling matters related to investment trusts in Japan (including ETFs, Exchange Traded Funds) and investment corporations such as J-REITs. We also work with both international and Japan-based investment funds that are becoming increasingly diversified, including private equity funds, venture capital funds, hedge funds, fund of funds, infrastructure funds and commodity funds. Our services in this area include advising on legal issues that arise in the course of structuring and marketing these investment funds, providing disclosure and filing notification with the relevant supervisory authorities as well as documentation of terms and conditions, certificate of incorporation, contracts, disclosure documents and notification documents, among others.
